Byron, CA (June 6, 2017) – Fast-acting BBID staff mobilized to put a temporary pipeline fix in place, ensuring the District’s customers will continue to receive normal water deliveries while repairs are made.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, part of the pipeline serving the District’s Bethany Division failed. Staff worked around the clock, swiftly installing bypass pumps specifically to serve those customers, keeping the water flowing and preventing any service interruptions during the growing season.
Meanwhile, the District is hard at work on fixing the original pipeline, sourcing new materials to make the necessary repairs and replacements. A forensic analysis will be conducted to determine the cause of the failure of the cement mortar steel pipe.
In the meantime, the temporary bypass pumps will be in place until permanent repairs are complete.
